Detailed description

Experience the underwater world off Tenerife on a glass bottom boat

A unique excursion on the south coast of Tenerife: board the glass bottom boat and discover the wonderful underwater world of the Atlantic Ocean on the dolphin tour from Playa las Americas. The south coast of Tenerife is particularly well-known for dolphin sightings and the potential for whale-watching. A Tenerife boat trip will not only bring you closer to the marine life, but also to the island itself. The view of the coast and the landscape that you get from the water is both impressive and beautiful.

There is a choice of 3 different excursions on the glass bottom boat. The starting point in each case is the harbour at Puerto Colón, which is popular for sporting activities and tourists. This is where the Royal Dolphin is berthed – this well-equipped equipment catamaran can accommodate up to 222 passengers. The two air-conditioned underwater compartments are equipped with panoramic windows and 10 underwater cameras. The images are transmitted to the screens on the main deck so that all of the passengers can experience life in the sea as it is filmed.

Once on board, you will start a comfortable cruise towards the neighbouring island of La Gomera. You will be amazed by the fantastic views of both islands. The Atlantic Ocean off Tenerife is very rich in fish and soon you will be able to observe the different whale and dolphin species that live off the coast of Tenerife from one of the decks, in the underwater area or on the screens. The Royal Dolphin has the "Blue Boat" standard, which indicates that tours to observe the different species are sustainable and respectful. This also includes reduced speed in the dolphin’s territory.

Also you will not want for anything on board. Drinks and food are included during the 3-hour and the 4.5-hour boat tour. The highlights include the Los Gigantes cliffs and the enchanting Masca Bay, where there will be a swimming stop for the guests on the "big tour". As well the most important safety information, a qualified tour guide will give you useful information about the island of Tenerife, the fauna on land and in the water and the how the environment around our beautiful island is being protected. You can relive the whole panorama of the south coast of Tenerife on the way back to Puerto Colón and enjoy taking in all of the sights again.

A nice trip

We planned the trip as a family. A glass bottom boat seemed to us the best choice for the kids. In fact, they had great fun on the discs to look out. Unfortunately, we did not see dolphins that day, which has already disappointed us. But the food was really ok and we had a lot of fun with the swimming breaks.

Ein schöner Ausflug

Wir haben den Ausflug als Familie geplant. Ein Glasbodenboot schien uns für die Kinder die beste Wahl zu sein. Tatsächlich hatten sie großen Spaß an den Scheiben zum Rausschauen. Delfine haben wir an dem Tag leider nicht gesehen, was uns schon enttäuscht hat. Dafür war das Essen wirklich in Ordnung und wir hatten viel Spaß bei den Badepausen.

A little bit of everything in this walk

It has been a simple trip but at the same time with everything: food, boat trip and dolphins. The food was not bad, a bit cold maybe. And we saw dolphins, which was the most important point, the reason why we booked. The price is good, as well as the attention received.

De todo un poco en este paseo

H sido una excursión sencillita pero a la vez con todo: comida, paseo en barco y delfines. La comida no estaba mal, un poco fría talvez. Y vimos delfines, que era el punto más importante, la razón por la que reservamos. El precio es bueno, asi como la atencion recibida.

Highlight for my son

I was with my 9 year old son on the trip and for him it was the highlight of the holiday, because he has seen dolphins. The are very close swum to the boat! One can see under water by the window and watch the fish. The boat has been clean, the food was fine.

Highlight für meinen Sohn

Ich war mit meinem 9-jährigen Sohn auf dem Ausflug und für ihn war es das Highlight des Urlaubs, weil er Delfine gesehen hat. Die sind sehr nah am Boot vorbeigeschwommen! Man kann unter Wasser durch die Fenster sehen und die Fische beobachten. Das Boot ist sauber gewesen, das Essen war in Ordnung.
